This is one of my submissions for the Art on Transit program that Translink is doing. Translink is the Vancouver bus system. Character looks familiar, yes? I liked my initial drawing, and wanted to expand it and find out more about this creature. I tried a few different tails (shark tail, dolphin tail, etc.) but settled on more of a lizard-ish tail.
digital (Illustrator and little bit Photoshop)
Expanded pencil sketch/drawing.
Screen shots of in-process work. I initially jumped right into color, and then proceeded to confuse myself. So I went back to straight black and white to try to wrestle out the values.
In-process changing the greyscale to color.
Whole finished guy. Overall pretty happy with it.
